Your first option of all vinyl is the way to go if you want a "go anywhere, do anything" type of seat. It looks great and is easy to take care of. Keep it clean with a damp cloth and go ride. That's it - simple.
LEATHER / VINYL COMBO:
Your second choice is the leather/vinyl combo. With this option, you're getting your cake and eating it too. It features all the comfort of a leather seat without having to dig to deep into your pocket. Leather conditioner will be needed to keep the seating area looking its best. (A word to the wise; nine times out of ten when you see a seat advertised as "leather" you are getting this combo. So make sure you are getting what you pay for.)
The cream of the crop... It is the option to have if you want the ultimate seat. . Yes, you will have to take care of it. Yes, you have to use a leather conditioner on it. With leather being a natural material it can vary from hide to hide. Wrinkles, small imperfections and inconsistency in color should not be considered a flaw, rather an innate quality of leather making each leather seat a beautifully natural, unique piece. It is all part of the charm of leather. Leather seats should be cleaned and conditioned with leather products regularly. Once every 3-4 months in most climates; more frequently in dry climates. Since there are several different leather products and leather tanning processes, it is always recommended to test any products to be used on a small portion of the seat, preferably the underside, before applying to the whole seat. No, it is not ideal to leave in the scorching sun for days at a time. No, it is not in your best interest to leave it out in the rainstorm for hours. Nevertheless, if you are looking for the most comfortable seat and supreme bragging rights, this is the only way to go.
Please note: Distressed leathers are designed to look aged so there may be small scars, nicks, wrinkles and scratches throughout the hide. They are also designed to continue to distress with time and use. Exposure to the sun may cause fading. The color changes from hide to hide so no two seats are 100% alike. At times wrinkles in the seating area may occur; this sometimes happens with leather, this is not a manufacture defect. Cleaners and conditioners typically darken these leathers so it is recommended to test a small section, preferably on the underside of the seat, before applying to entire seat.
The Embossed leathers are specialty leathers so they are meant mainly for use on show bikes or bikes with minimal exposure. After time, elements, and or sun exposure, the leather may fade in color and the texture may smooth out. If you are looking for a more durable material, we would suggest smooth leather. There may be slight wrinkling that occurs; this is typical for leather covers. We do offer a rain cover to protect your seat from the elements.
